Where have I been? In a deep dark hole trying to straighten out my damn google accounts since they have bought out yahoo and youtube.
I had multiple google accounts associated with work, with my gun rights group, with libertarian work and my personal. Once google FORCED me to associate a google account with my youtube, I lost those. I think I might have finally gotten that back to working and just today got my blogger account straight.
WHY? Because they just ASSumed which google account went with what! I still don't have the right email address associated with this but at least I can log in and post new stuff.
gag i hate google
So I'll be back later with new goodies for ya.
The Cost of Being Numb

WHAT IS FAITH?
What is faith? Faith is believing in something you cannot prove.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (New International Version-1984)
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of thing hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (New American Standard Bible)
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (King James Version)
I have faith that Jesus is the Son of God. I have faith that He performed miracles. I have faith that Jesus was resurrected from the grave by God the Father. I believe this because I have faith that the historical record of the Bible is accurate, yet I cannot prove it. There are no living eyewitness to confirm that Jesus was who He said He was or that He was resurrected from the dead, I accept it by faith, I believe it, however, I cannot prove it.
Atheists do not believe the fact that Jesus was the Son of God or that there even is a God, they cannot prove their unbelief, they accept it by faith.
Romans 8:24 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope, for who hopes for what he already sees?(NASB)
We have hope we have been saved, but we hope because of faith. We cannot prove we have been saved. We believe that we have been saved because we believe, by faith, that the Bible is accurate and trustworthy.
John 20:27-31 Then He said to Thomas, "Reach here with you finger, see My hands and put them into my side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing." 28 Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!'29 Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed." ...... (NASB)
Thomas had proof that Jesus was resurrected from the grave. Men today cannot prove the resurrection of Jesus from the grave, they accept it by faith.
There were more than five hundred brethren, including the apostles, who saw Jesus alive after He faced death on the cross. They were eyewitnesses, they had proof of the resurrection of Jesus. (1 Corinthians 15:3-7)
Those of us alive today have to have FAITH that the Biblical accounts of Jesus and His resurrection are true. We cannot prove they are true. NO ONE IS ALIVE TODAY WHO WAS AN EYEWITNESS TO THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS.
FAITH IS BELIEVING SOMETHING YOU CANNOT PROVE!
NOTE: Atheists believe, by faith, that God does not exists, but they cannot prove it.

oooh snap!!!...you shouldn't say stuff like that...
expect a drone overhead soon...
Look...I'm not a religious person nor am I an atheist (at least not that I'm aware of so far), but what the hell is this stumping on someone else's blog to drum up business on yours? I'm pretty sure that might be a sin.
But I digress - you say (or quote maybe), "There were more than five hundred brethren, including the apostles, who saw Jesus alive after He faced death on the cross. They were eyewitnesses, they had proof of the resurrection of Jesus."
Now here's the problem. We cannot even determine what happened in Ferguson in an age where we record megabytes of audio and HD video on devices that fit in our pockets, but a zillion years ago, when people were using elephants for dishwashers and wore little sundials on their wrists and had little birds in their "camera" boxes chiseling out pictures in stone with their beaks (it's true - I've seen a TV show where they use this stuff), they have this ironclad proof of what you say?
Don't take this the wrong way Steve. I'm sure you're a pretty decent guy, but a little annoying...and you've frightened butts a little. He's on the roof of the Bucket 'O Suds screaming at the sky, but the fire department is on the way.
And Auntie, will you quit deleting Ma's posts for cryin out loud. I love that shit she puts out. It's FUNNY dammit!
